COMPARATIVE TIME-TABLE, 

.Showing the Time at the Principal Cities of the Confederate 
■ States, compared with Noon at Richmond, Va. 



There is no " Standard Rail-Road time" in the Confederate States, 
but each rail-road company adopts independently the time of i f s own 
locality, or of that place at which its principal office is situated. The 
inconvenience of such a system, if system it can be called, must be ap- 
parent to all, but is most annoying to persons strangers to the fact. 
From this cause, many miscalculations and misconnections have aris- 
en; which aiot u'nfrequently have been of serious consequence to 
individuals, and have, a.s a matter of eourse, brought into disrepute all 
Rail-road Guides, which of necessity give the local times. In order to 
relieve, in some degree, this anomaly in American rail-roading, we pre- 
sent the following table of local time, compared with that of Richmond,

than a vast military hospital. A 
soldier coming down from there 
on the train the other night, gave 
a very fair idea of the attractive- 
ness of the place in the following 
manner. Several were speaking 
of the lack of accommodation 
there, whenake remarked :

say, drive on boys!"

WILMINGTON, N. C, on Cape Fear river, 34 miles from the sea, was 
in times past noted for its extensive trade iu naval stores and lumber, 
but since the opening of the war it has been frequently threatened by 
the enemy, and has from that and other causes sunk almost into in- 
significance. Its approaches by water are strongly fortified, and the 
city is now more a barracks than a place of trade. It is the centre of 
several important rail-roads. Population, in 1860, 10,000.

NEWBERN, capital of Craven county, North Carolina, is situated 
at the confluence of the Neuse and Trent rivers, about 120 miles South- 
east of Raleigh? It was for many years the capital of the State ; but 
now, alas, in the possession of our enemies. The Neuse river, which 
is more than a mile wide at this place, is navigated by steamboats 
about eight mouths of the year. The entrance from the sea is through 
Ocracoke Inlet. 

KINSTON, capital of Lenoir county, North Carolina, 80 miles South- 
east of Raleigh. It has been the scene of a battle in the present war, 
but its defenders maintained their ground. The 'Atlantic & North 
Carolina rail-road is now operated only as far as Kinston.- 

FALLING CREEK, post-town of Wayne county, North Carolina. 

MOSELY HALL, post-town of Lenoir county, North Carolina. 

GOLDSBORO, N. C, two miles from Neuse river, which is navigable 
for light draft vessels to this point. At one time a force of the enemy 
ten thousand strong approached the town, both'by land and water, 
and succeeded in getting near enough to the rail-road bridge, two 
miles below, with their gun-boats to burn it. A fierce battle ensued, 
and the enemy were routed.

River Rail-Rqad (p45). At Junction with Marion & Greensboro' Rail- 
Road, running to Marion, Ala., (p63). At Uniontown with branch 
to Newberne. At Meridian with Southern (p50), and Mobile & Ohio 
Rail Roads (p48). 

It is the design of this road to run to Montgomery — making the line 
complete from Montgomery to Meridian. But, for the present passen- 
gers are carried between Montgomery and Selma by a line of daily 
steamers. 

*From Demopolis to McDowell's, passengers arc carried by Steam- 
boat Marengo on the Tombigbee river. Before taking the boat at 
Demopolis westward, however, passengers have ample time to get a 
good dinner at the River Hotel, also, on leaving the boat eastward.

POCATALIGO, S. C, is a small town, brought into notice recently 
from its having been thescene of a battle, and the threats of the enemy 
to advance at that point from their gun-boats. It derives its name, 
we are informed by a correspondent of the Atlanta Lntelligencer, from 
the following source : 

" One day some of the early settlers on the sound caught a turtle, 
and were trying to drive him homeward, but they made slow pro- 
gress with the zigzag locomotion creature. At this juncture some 
of the shore Indians came up with the party, and said to one of the 
drivers, ' Poke lie tail he go / refering to an excellent method of push- 
ing the varmint along. They followed the natives' advice and found 
it succeed admirably — with which result they were so much pleased 
that they called the place as nearly the sentence as possible. But it 
has gradually, in the wear of centuries, come down te a plain com- 
pound word, to wit : Pocataligo." 

We cannot be held responsible for the validity of the foregoing, 
but presume the gentleman who gives the information is well posted.

HINTS TO TRAVELERS. 

It behooves travelers, in these times of confidence men, pick- 
pockets and thieves, to keep a wary eye upon their valuables. Put your 
money in some pocket or other "place of difficult access, when you 
start on a " trip." If you have hand-baggage, such as a carpet-bag, or 
the like, keep it where you can see it ; and if you change cars, don't trust 
it to strangers to carry for you. If you should travel through Augusta, 
beware of a big blustering butcher of a fellow, who collects the stage 
fare, before you start, for carrying you from one depot to another, 
and when you arrive at the other, is there again to demand of you still 
another fare. This game has been practiced to some extent by this 
same individual, and as he is employed by a monopoly in the omnibus 
business, there is no retreat from him unless you walk. 

In arriving at Montgomery depot by the evening train from Mobile, 
be careful not to hand your baggage to any stranger who may offer to 
assist you. Some thieves at this place have a bewitching fashion of re- 
lieving travelers 'of their hand-baggage — which is doneln this way : as 
the traveler, with his valise or carpet-bag is about to enter the omnibus, 
the thief, lantern in hand, stands at the door, as if belonging to the 
omnibus, and in an authoritative manner says : " It's too much crowded 
in thei'e to take in your baggage, let me put it on top o' the 'bus" — and 
ten chances to one the unthinking traveler falls into the trap, hands 
over his valise or what-not, and never-sees it again. And if you should 
lose your valise in that way, and go to ffiie police-office in Montgomery, 
with the hope of giving them something in their way to do, a big burly 
Irishman will look up at you, half asleep, aud say — " How the divil 
d'ye think I kin find the thafe ; an' besides that, the depot is out o' the 
corporation, an' we haiut got no right to go out there to look afther no 
th ate." 

In these times of war aud martial law, it is necessary for the traveler 
to be armed with a passport. In case there are none issued by the lo- 
cal authorities in the neighborhood of his home, he should go to the 
first Provost Marshal's office on his route and procure one ; to do which 



67 

he must present the necessary vouchers as to his individuality. At 
every military post through which he may pass, it is necessary to re- 
new the passport or have it countersigned. By following this rule he 
will save time and annoyance. 

Travelers going long distances should trace out their route before 
starting, and make memoranda of places at which it is desirable to 
make halts. It will save much time and expense. 

Tickets should be procured at the office before starting, as on near- 
ly all rail-roads an additional charge is made in the cars. Children un- 
der i> years of age, accompanied with parents, usually ride free ; those 
between 5 and 12 are charged half price. Conductors usually judge 
for themselves of the age of children. 

Baggage should be checked before starting. 

On almost all the trains will be found Baggage, or Express Agents, 
who will take charge of baggage on the arrival at the termini. They 
are regularly authorized by the rail-road companies, and can be safely 
intrusted with its safe delivery. 

It often happens that travelers, by some want of information, or 
care, lose their baggage ; and to regain it, give themselves, as well as 
the rail-road companies, much unnecessary trouble. In every such 
case, if the person is at a distance, and wishes to recover the article 
lost, write to the Superintendent of the road, on which such loss was 
sustained, stating the day, which direction the tram was going, and 
the hour at which it passed some given point on the road. When 
this information is all correctly given, the Superintendent will know 
at once which officer in the employ of the company to approach. 

Soldiers, to travel now-a-days, must have correct papers, or it is 
no go. He must have, in the first place, his furlough; upon that he 
can get his passports from one military post to another, which he 
should always be careful to have, as it will save him time and trouble. 
Transportation is granted at almost every rail-road terminus or junc- 
tion upon the order of his commanding officer. In case he has not 
such order, his furlough will entitle him to the soldiers' rate, which, on 
most of the railroads is about half the usual fare. 

It has been legally decided that applicants for tickets on rail-roads 
can be ejected from the cars if they do not offer the exact amount of 
their fare. Conductors are not bound to make change. All rail-road 
tickets are good until used, and conditions " good for this day. only," 
or otherwise admitting time of genuineness, are of no account. Pas- 
sengers who lose th'eir tickets can be ejected from the cars unless they 
purchase a second one. Passengers are bound to observe decorum 
in the cars, and are obliged to comply with all reasonable demands to 
show their tickets. Standing upon the platform or otherwise violat- 
ing the rule of the company, renders a person liable to be put from 
the train. No person has a right to monopolize more seats than he 
has paid for, and any article left in a seat, while the owner is tempo- 
rarily absent, entitles him to the place upon his return. 

Travellers going to Virginia to visit thsir relatives in the army, or 
to bring home wounded soldiers, should, if they? are over the age of 
conscription, furnish themselves with certificaces from the County 



68 

Court Clerk of their respective counties, setting forth that they are 
over the age for conscription. 

Soldiers must show their furloughs in order to purchase half rate 
tickets. This should be done cheerfully, for unless this examination 
be made hj Ticket Agents, many persons who are not entitled to half 
rate tickets would procure the same under pretense of being soldiers. 

Ticket Agents are responsible for the mistakes they make, and as 
many of them are poor men and have families to support from small 
salaries, several questions should not be asked agents at the same 
time ; this tends to confuse them and cause them to make mistakes. 
No passenger should a?k a question unless the agent is waiting on 
him. Let each one take his turn at procuring a ticket, and not half a 
dozen at once. 

Abreviations used in the Time-Tables. — Ace, Accommodation 
Train; Ex/p., Express Train ; Pass., Passenger Train. 

The lines extending across the page in the tables, divide the sta- 
tions on a branch, from the stations on the main line. 

The right-hand columns of the Time-Tables read up, the left-hand 
read down. As an additional aid to the Traveler, let him observe if 
the miles read from 1 to 10, 20, or more-; he will thus be enabled to un- 
derstand how the Table runs, whether up or down. 

TO SUPERINTENDENTS. 

Superintendents are earnestly requested to mail their Time-Tables 
when changes are made in the departure and arrival of tbeir different 
trains to and from their different points of destination, in order that 
we may be enabled to make the "Guide" as perfect as possible. 

Travelers, who make use of the ''Guide" will oblige the publish- 
ers by informing them ot any inaccuracies they may find therein ; and 
any information calculated to prove beneficial to the traveling com- 
munity will be received with pleasure. 

TO ADVERTISERS. 
Business men will at once see the great advantage of the Guide over 
every other publication, as a general advertising medium. Therefore, 
it is needless for us to waste time and space .in expatiating upon its 
merits, in that particular respect. So we would merely say to all — be 
sure to send in your advertisements early, remembering that they 
will be read by at least three or four hundred thousand persons. 

COLUMBIA & AUGUSTA RAIL-ROAD. 

We see by the Columbia and Augusta papers, that a spirit of 
the right kind is being shown by the people of South Carolina 
and Georgia, in regard to the projected road between the tAvo 
most beautiful cities in our whole Confederacy. This is a wor- 
thy project, and we- hope soon to see that the whole line is 



69 

under contract. The following extract from an article in the 
South Carolinian, is to the point : 

" At this time, when the coast and seaport cities are threat- 
ened with raids from the reckless and vandal foe, it can scarcely 
be possible ior us to attach too much importance to the neces- 
sity ol building this road, and that at once. The influence for 
good which it will produce under existing circumstances will 
be incalculable. It will develop the resources and increase the 
wealth of the sections named, and benefit, in some degree, the 
whole Confederacy. 

Where this road is desired to pass, enterprise and industry 
are sure of their rewards. Patriotism would be a feeble pas- 
sion, and wealth would lose much of its value, as a means of 
promoting the public good, were the citizens of Augusta, Ham- 
burg, Edgefield, Columbia and North Carolina, to fail to be 
struck with the special significance that the immediate building 
of this road will stamp on the economy of the country in every 
way. It will save time and money to the Government. It 
binds together in indissoluble links of iron, two enterprising 
and wealthy cities, (Columbia and Augusta,) which are des- 
tined to act a prominent part in the magnificent future of South- 
ern progress and independence. 

With regard to the geography of the country we have pre- 
cise and accurate information. A complete and satisfactory 
survey has been made, which developes the important fact that 
it is the shortest and the best route to locate the road, and that 
it will make an air line from Mississippi to Virginia, passing 
through a beautiful section remote from the coast." 



Mr. L. H. do Rosset, will please accept thanks for a 
number of valuable Rail-Road items. 

UtaP" 1 Not long since I called upon some lady friends of. mine, 
and was ushered into the parlor by the servant girl.. She asked 
what name she should, announce, and I, wishing to take them 
by surprise, replied Amicus (a friend). She seemed at first a 
little puzzled, but quickly regaining her composure, she in' 
the blandest manner possible observed, " What kind of a cuss, 
sir?" ,...,. 

The curious man goes about to gratify his curiosity ; but he 
will probably never travel far enough to find anything more 
curious than himself.

THE LADIES' CAR. 

Since the war began, the "Ladies' Car," has become an "in- 
dispensable institution " upon all well regulated Rail-Koads, and 
is frequently the scene ot many a gallantry that is prompted by 
more selfish motives than a casual observer would at first sup- 
pose. To expose these uses and abuses, we propose, from time 
to time, to give our readers a medley of incidents, accidents, and 
occurrences — allowing the " Ladies' Car " to speak propria 
persona?. ; for all must acknowledge that she must know best of 
what she sees, while a single traveller would let the richest 
gems pass unseen. So, with this introduction we shall retire, 
and the Ladies' Car will tell her own stories. 

Ten ! Yes,' ten rough looking men have each taken two 
seats, and spread themselves accordingly, when a lady steps on 
the platform for admission to the so-called sanctuary, and as she 
is shown in by the polite guard, she looks enquiringly about and 
asks : 

"Is this the Ladies' Car?" 

" Yes mem," replies the guard. 

" Well, it has little the appearance of it now, I declare," and 
the lady began looking where she might find a seat by herself. 

Who are these men? We will raise their hats from over 
their eyes (where they have pulled them for very shame of 
their own conduct) and see if we can distinguish to what order 
of humanity they belong. 

Hah! a Colonel! Well I declare ! And a Confederate Col- 
onel too— worse and worse, but then the Superintendent es^ 
corted him and ordered him to be passed — so it must be all 
right — and besides that, he is a soldier, a long way Jrom home, 
and " don't expect to marry in this section of country ho how," 
so, I'll excuse him. 

You, sir ! Who are you ? Oh, I see — a Captain, and a man 
who always obeys orders, no matter what the ladies or any- 



71 

body else says. Came in by the Colonel ordering the guard to 
"let that man pass." Very good; I must excuse him. 

And the next is — well, may I believe my eyes, another Cap- 
tain, and a man who is quite as averse to disobeying orders as 
the one just passed. Well, under the same rule I shall have to 
excuse him. 

Number four, the best looking of all, and one whom I had 
hoped to" see rise and give the lady his seat, preserved the same 
apparent unconcern for what was passing until the lady was 
seated, when he turned a volley of eyes upon her that were 
destined to do their work. He was a Lieutenant, and another 
man who takes pride in obeying orders. His Captain com- 
missioned him to enter. Another excuse is of course necessary 
in this case. 

The next four are also soldiers, but unfortunately for them 
and me, they bear no distinguishing marks by which their rank 
can be distinguished, so we must set them clown as privates. — 
Privates! astonishing! Privates in .the Ladies' Car! What 
miracle could have been instrumental in this? Directly after 
the Lieutenant entered, a gentle tap was heard at his window, 
and when he inquired: "Who's there?" the leader of the 
squad replied : 

"Its lour o' your boys Lieutenant; can't you git us in there 
some how ?" 

" Don't know— I'll see — go to the front door." 

The parties meet at the door designated, when the Lieuten- 
ant commands: 

" Guard, pass those men," and the guard steps aside and the 
boys pass in. What must I do now ? Pass another excuse ? 
I wish I had not excused the first encroachment, and then I 
should not have been bothered with this; but, as I have allowed 
a precedent, why I must abide by it— so, of course these last 
four are excusable. 

Two more remain, of whom I must speak. One is a tolera- 



72 



bly rough looking case — and the question naturally arises — how 
in the world did he ever get into the Ladies' Car, where a guard 
is placed for the especial purpose of securing ladies against the 
presence of coarse, indecent looking men, the very picture of 
which my subject represents? I'll tell you — he is a particular 
friend ot our trusty guard, who thinks he will treat his friend 
to* a luxury in'.the way of women, if he can't in the way or 
wide. So he is accounted for, and a right good candidate is he 
to be excused f$r his trespass. 

The next is not very unlike the last in appearance. He is a 
friend of the brakeman, who takes great care to preserve the 
friendship of the guard, and thus through a train of influential 
influence he gains admittance to the coveted presence of the 
ladies. He, most certainly is excusable. Who would'nt? 

Ladies now begin to come in — one by one the before de- 
scribed ten, relinquish their extra seats after the ladies ask for 
them, until at length the Lieutenant, capable of no further re- 
sistancp to his natural gallantry gives up his seats to a bevy of 
pretty girls, and retreats to the nearest point from which a suc- 
cessful' attack might be made on the lady who first entered, and 
who his eyes had not ceased to prey upon. He at length i en- 
tures a word. Ah ! it is favorably received. How could it be 
otherwise though; a man of good appearance always takes with 
the ladies, and no questions asked about sense. 

There he goes, I thought that would be the end of it. He 
t-its down beside her. I can safely put that down for a love 
affair, of which I may reveal the secrets one of these days. For 
the present I wit! leave them to enjoy themselves. 

"Ladies' Gar, sir," says the sentinel almost continuously — 
"Ladies' Car!'' and everybody who wishes to take the train is 
certain to approach the ladies' car first. 

"Ladies' Car, sir." 

" Ot course it's the ladies' car, that's just the car I want." . 

" Have you a lady aboard ?" 



73 

"Certainly I have, or what do you think I'd be here for." 

"All right sir, pass in sir,, excuse me sir," saj^s my verj' po- 
lite guard, and a " fellah " that "knows the ropes" is admitted. 

Several are admitted iu this manner until the car becomes 
overcrowded, while other cars on the train are comparatively 
empty. But who's to blame for this — all are excusable. The 
magnet is there and ■' human natur " does the rest. 

Another applicant for admission! Ah ! I've seen that face 
before. Well, now, I should be loth to accuse him of trying to 
get into the ladies car, without the very palpable excuse of a 
lady on his arm. -The guard tells him it is the Ladies' Car, he 
parleys — its no use, the ladies' car is invulnerable — he can't 
command the " influential influence," and he retires, falls back, 
retreats. He is an Editor! What a pity it is these editors 
have'nt a little more brass— they could see lots of fun it they 
would only put on the faces that" some of our military men do, 
and especially the marriageable ones. But cf this enough until

FIGHT WITH A JAGUAR, OR AMERICAN TIGER. 

The Galveston News, gives the following account of a des- 
perate fight between Mr. Absalom Williams, who is about sev- 
enty 3'ears of age, his wife, and an enormous tiger: 

The tiger was first discovered on the premises ot Mr. James 
Drake, who lives in the north portion of Jefferson couoty, where 
it entered his enclosure, attacked his horses, and killed one, be 
sides wounding two others. While the tiger was committing 
its depredations, it was discovered by Francis Drake, son of the 
proprietor of the premises, who fired a shot gun at.ft, wounding 
it in the side, but not dangerously, when it made its escape 
The next day, while Mr. and "Mrs. Williams were sitting in 
their house, (the rest 01 the family being absent), they were 
startled by a strange noise m the yard, in front of their house. 
Mr. W., on going out, discovered his dog engaged with a tiger, 
when he seized an ox-yoke and aimed a blow at the "varmint," 
but, missing it, struck his dog. The dog then got away from 
the tiger, and retreated. In an instant the tiger sprung on Mr. 
Williams, and, seizing him by .the hand, jerked him about twenty 
feet. The old gentleman, finding himself in the too powerful 
grasp of the wild animal, courageously determined to give it the 
best ''rough and tumble fight" in his power; and, having no 
weapons within his reach^ he seized the tiger by the tht'oat 
with his other hand, and, throwing his whole strength forward, 
crushed the tiger to the ground, both falling side by side. At 
this time Mrs. W'illiams came to the rescue, with a gun, which 
she snapped at the tiger, but, there being no priming in the 
pan, it did not go off. Mr. W. then, with one arm round 
the' tiger's body, and grasping its throat with his other hand, 
by an effort, disengaged himself. The tiger, discovering a new 
adversary in the person of Mrs. "W., jumped at her, and at- 
tempted to grasp her head within its jaws, while it- struck and 
lacerated her breast with its fore paws. She tried to avoid the 
monster, but was felled to the ground. The tiger made another 
grasp at her head, his upper teeth penetrating at the top of the 
skull and sliding along the bone, peeled off the skin till they 
met the lower teeth, which penetrated on the right side of her 
face. 

In the meantime, Mr. W. had seized the ox-yoke again, and, 
giving the tiger a tremendous blow, caused it to leave Mrs. W., 
when it leaped into the house and got under the bed. The 
door was immediately closed, and the monster secured. Mr. 



I 75 

W. was exhausted from the effects of his wounds, from which 
the blood flowed in streams ; but not so his better half. When 
she saw their mutual foe thus attempt to take possession of 
their house, she determined to finish the battle, and, notwith- 
standing the severity of her wounds, her dress almost entirely 
torn from her person, and covered with blood, she deliberately 
took the gun, and, shaking some powder from the barrel into 
the pan, placed the muzzle between one of the openings which 
the logs of the house afforded, and fired with deadly aim. The 
tiger was killed. When subsequently measured, it was found 
to be twelve feet from the tip ot its tail to its nose. 

During all the time the fight was going on, no one but those 
engaged in it were within hearing. Mr. W.'s nearest neighbor 
lives three miles off. However, as Mrs. W. was washing the 
blood from her person, a neighbor came riding by, and, alarmed 
at her appearance, inquired the cause'. The old lady, unable 
from the loss of blood to speak, pointed to the dead body of the 
tiger. 

The escape of Mr. and Mrs. Williams is indeed wonderful, 
and they are now recovering gradually from their wounds. — 
Mr. W. jokes about the tiger fight, and intimates that the old 
lady was most enraged when the " varmint" took possession of 
his bed and house. It need hardly be added that Mr. Williams 
is a brave man. He fought the British at New Orleans, and 
subsequently the Mexicans, in the cause of Texas; but this last 
fight is, perhaps, the most singular of all. His wife, in intrepi- 
dity and daring, is worthy of him, and the two. together, are 
of that courageous class that have encountered forest wilds and 
frontier dangers — the pioneers of Christian civilization and 
American institutions. 

Let Good Things go Round. — " Feller sogers," said a new- 
ly elected lieutenant of militia, ; ' I'm all fired obliged to you 
for this shove up in the ranks you have given me. Feller sog- 
ers, I'm not going to forget your kindness soon, not by a darn- 
ed sight ; and I'll tell you what it is, I'll stick to my post like 
pitch to a pine board, so long as there's no fighting, but as I go in 
for rotation in office, and if we should come to blows with the 
enemy darn'd if I don't resign right off, and give every fellow 
a fair shake for fame and glory, and all that, ere." 

Every man cheerishes in his heart some object — some shrine 
at which his adoration is paid, unknown to his fellow-mortals.

COURTSHIP AND CLEANING HOUSE. 

It was the most golden and glorious of September days. The 
veil of blue haze hanging like a canopy over the distant hills, 
seemed absolutely to quiver in the radiant glow of the autumn 
sunshine, and the grapes, whose amethystine clusters blushed 
through the trellis of leaves, grew deeper in colour and more 
bloomy, as if they had stolen the imperial dye of a thousand 
purple sunsets and brilliant dawns, as the sun mounted_ higher 
and higher in the cloudless dome of heaven. No frescoed ceil- 
ing, hung with jeweled pendants, was ever more beautiful than 
this arbour of grape leaves where the light and shadow danced 
in fitful arabesques with every moving wind — and so thought 
Richard Mayfield as he came slowly up the garden path that 
led to his brother's house. 

The mansion itself, however, was far from presenting the 
gala aspect which pervaded all nature, aucl our hero's counten- 
ance underwent a ludicrous transformation, as he eyed the yawn- 
ing windows and wide open doors. 

"By all the powers," said he to himself, " if Isabel isn't clean- 
ing! Well, women are che most unaccountable creatures! 
Well, I do believe they delight in turning things upside down 
and making themselves and the rest of the world uncomforta- 
ble. What's the use of choking people with dust, and delug- 
ing 'em with soap and water twice a year? However, let. the 
dear enigmas have their own way. I'm sure I am the last per- 
son in the world to object!" 

With these philosopical reflections yet in his mind, Mr. May- 
field defiantly threaded his .way through a colony of whitewash 
pails and lime kettles that surrounded the front door, and en- 
tered upon the scene of action. It was quite plain from the 
shout with which the children greeted his appearance, that he 
was a general favorite. 

"Hallo, uncle Dick, we're cleaning house!" cried Master 
Henry Augustus Mayfield, who was mounted astride of a doub- 
led up feather bed. castigating it fearfully with his mother's 
best parasol. 

"Ain't it splendid, Uncle Dick?" exclaimed Miss Julia, who 
was endeavoring to "pry out" the principle of sound from a 
thirty dollar music box, by introducing a carving knife into its 
interior works, while Mrs. Mayfield, half distracted by calls from 
diverse directions, was totally unconscious of the mischief being 
wrought. 



77 

'•'Dick, I am so puzzled and annoyed," she said. "Here is 
John called to the city by a pressing law-suit, and the whole 
house upside down i" 

"Thought that was what you ladies liked," said Dick, perch- 
ing himself upon the top of the dining table, and rescuing a 
shell basket from the destructive grasp of the smallest May- 
field of all. • 

And my cook has gone, and the fire won't burn, and the 
wall-whiteners haven't come this morning, and .the parlor ceil- 
ing is half unfinished, and you know the sewing society is to 
be here to-morrow night — and Dick, what shall 1 do?" 

"Don't fret!" said Richard, soothingly, "I'll make the fire 
burn, or I'll know the reason why ; and I can finish the ceiling 
for you !" 

"You?" 

"Yes me. Didn't I white my own room at college, when 
we boys had smoked it into the colour of an old snmT-box ? 
And then I'll tack the carpet down, and see about putting those 
dislocated bedsteads together." 

"But, Dick, you must be too tired after dancing until twelve 
o'clock at the pic-nic last night." 

"Me tired? B'iddlestick ! Where's the refractory stove ?" 

The very fire was not proof against Dick's sunny determina- 
tion. It broke into a cheerful blaze the moment he attacked 
its citadel, and Isabel's face brightened simultaneously. The 
skill with which he next erected a scaffolding and mouuted 
thereon, with a panoply of whitewash rjails and brushes, was 
perfectly astonishing, the more so, as his slender figure, rather 
pale complexion, aristocratically small hands and feet, con- 
veyed the idea of one who was adapted only to pic-nics arid glit- 
tering bali rooms. 

" I suppose the workmen didn't leave their wardrobes, when 
they went away last evening, Bell?" he asked, when he had 
scaled the rather perilous height. 

"No," said his sister-in-law, laughing. 

"Then just hand up that old sheet — and a piece of the bed- 
cord yonder. Now, don't you admire my tout ensemble?" 

" Uncle Dick looks like a ghost," said Master Henry Augus- 
tus. 

" No he don't—he looks like the old miller down at the Pond," 
struck in Miss Julia. 

"Upon my word, I don't know which of you is the most 



78 

complimentary," observed Richard drily. "Now, then, clear 
the track every soul of you, and give me a chance !" 

And he worked on, now breaking into a merry whistle, now 
pausing to survey his achievements, but oftenest of all, relaps- 
ing into thoughts of the beautiful young damsel at the pic nic 
last night, who had been so studiously cold and reserved toward 
him. 

"She won't like me," thought he, "and I can't for the life of 
me tell why. Well', as I said before, women are unaccountable 
concerns!" 

" A.my," said Mrs. Brownleigh, to her pretty young cousin, 
' I wish you would just run over to Mrs. Mayiield's with this 
note. The children are at school, and I have no one to send." 

"Oh, no," said Amy, while a fresh tinge suffused her delicate 
cheeks. "I don't want to encounter that superfine young col- 
legian." 

" Nonsense, he isn't there — he is staying with Harry Frank- 
lin." 

"Oh, then I will take the note." said Amy, rising, and look- 
ing round for her coquettish little gipsy hat. 

"You are the strangest girl, Amy.'lsaid her cousin. "What 
can be the reason that you dislike Eichard Mayfield? He is 
handsome and so talented!" 

"I don't fancy these 'ornamental people," said Amy, demure- 
ly. "My husband must be of some use in the world!" 

" How do you know but that Mr. Mayfield is ?'■ 

"Can't be possible," said Amy, archly shaking her curls. 
" His hands are too small for anything but lemon-coloured kid 
gloves. I'll wager a new bonnet, Alice, that he never did any- 
thing more laborious than to carry a box of cigars in his life !" 

Mrs. Brownleigh laughed, and Amy passed out of the vine- 
wreathed porch, wondering within herself whether Mr. Richard 
Mayfield had been very much vexed because she had refused 
to dance with him the evening before. 

Mrs. John Mayfield's house was at no very, great distance, 
and as Amy was quite intimate with that lady, and understood 
the domestic saturnalia that was at present transpiring within 
her domains, she did not think it necer-sary to knock, but open- 
ed the door and walked m without ceremony. 

There stood Dick, the apex of a pyramidical scaffolding of 
boards, his fine broad cloih obscured by a lime-splashed sheet 



79 

which was girded around his waist by a knot of rope, and his 
black curls overshadowed by a coarse, old straw hat, working 
away for dear life. His back was toward the door, and sup- 
posing the step to be that, of his sister-in-law, he said gaily, with- 
out turning his head : 

''What! is the carpet ready so soon, Bell? I'm just through 
here, and I'll come and tack it down in a minute." 

Not receiving any answer, he threw down the brush and turn- 
ed round. 

"Miss Brownleigh!" 

He never had looked so handsome in his life, and that was the 
first thought that rushed through Amy's mind, in the midst of 
all her embarrassment ; for Dick had the advantage of the young 
lady in this respect — she was embarrassed, and he was not. 

He sprang, laughingly, to the ground a d threw off his ghost- 
ly drapery. 

"You must think I have a curious taste in costume," said he, 
archly, " but the truth is that Isabel has been disappointed in 
her work-people, and my mother is away from home, so I am 
helping her clean the house. 

"I did not know — I thought you had no taste — " stammered 
Amy, unconsciously speaking out her thoughts. 

'• You supposed that I was nothing more than an ornamen- 
tal piece of furniture ? Ask Isabel about that," said Dick, half 
piqued, half smiling. "But can I be of any use to you now f" 

"I had a note from my cousin for Mrs. May field," said Amy, 
still speaking scarce above her breath. 

" She has gone down to the further orchard," said Dick. " It 
is some distance, and not a very straight path. If you will 
wait until I remove a little of this lime. I shall be happy to es- 
cort you down there." 

Half an hour ago, Amy would have haughtily informed him 
"it was quite unnecessary for her to trouble him," — now she 
stood still and waited. 

It was a long walk, under the spreading shadow of noble old 
apple trees, bending with their weight of crimson and russet 
fruit, and through meadows ankle deep in purple and bloom, 
and nodding plumes of golden-rod, yet, for all that, Amy was 
quite surprised when Mrs. Mayfield came in sight, carrying a 
little basket of rose-cheeked peaches from a pet tree beyond. 

We believe it is one of woman's special and incontrover- 
tible privileges to change her mind— therefore, nobody was 



80 

*much astonished when, three months subsequently, there was 
a rumor of the " engagement " of Mr. May field and Miss Brown- 
leigh ! Still, however. Dick always declared that it was an in- 
soluble mystery to him that when serenades and schottisches, 
poetry and perfumes, had all failed to win an entrance to the 
maiden's heart, a whitewash brush should have been the unro- 
mantic weapon which, at last, brought down,the barricade! 

AN AMERICAN AT WATERLOO. 

M. Leon GozLiN. a clever French magazinist, has just publish- 
ed two volumes of Miscellanies; in one of which is an account 
of a visit he made, a few months ago, to the field of Waterloo, 
and he give us in.it an illustration of French feeling. The fol- 
lowing anecdote, told by one ot the guides to M. G-ozlan, as a 
fact which had come under his own special observation, is 
particularly rich : An English traveler and an American trav- 
eler ascended, at the same time, the Mountain of the Lion, to 
enjoy the vast panorama of the battle-field. The same guide serv- 
ed for both. He commenced his recital with as much impartiality 
as possible ; but at length he could not avoid saying, " Here the 
French gave way before the impetuous charge ot the' English." 
Upon which, the American muttered, " That's not true /'" The 
Englishman looked at, him and the guide continued. Soon af- 
terwards he was obliged to say, in the course ot his narrative, 
" In the ravine to which I am pointing the French were put to 
flight by the English cavalry." " That's not true" repeated the 
obstinate American. The Englishman looked at him again, 
and calmly turned up his cuffs ; the American did so too. A 
third time the guide, whose oratorical powers were now in full 
swing, announced a fact more glorious to the English than to 
the French, and a third time the American coolly added, " Thafs 
not 'trueV- They went on for some time; but upon the eighth 
contradiction of the American, the Englishman threw himself 
upon him ; the American parried the blow, and with clenched 
fists they bagan to bos in solemn silence. They boxed upon a 
platform scarcely two yards' across, and over a perpendicular 
precipice of more than a hundred and forty feet in depth. Their 
rage increased with the force of their blows ; they closed, wrest- 
led and fell, and locked in each other's embrace, they rolled 
from the top to the bottom of the mountain. They were neitn- 
er dead nor wounded, but the American getting up from the 
ground, said to the Englishman, " No sir, it is not true."
